Minnesota's Secretary of State Unveils FairVote-Backed Legislative Agenda

Minnesota’s Secretary of State Mark Ritchie proposed an ambitious legislative agenda that expands participation and increases voter registration. Under his plan, Minnesotans would automatically register when they receive their driver’s license or state-issued ID. In addition, voters who change their address at the post office would automatically have their voter registration updated. Ritchie’s proposal will cut down on administrative data entry work that could save local governments throughout the state a substantial amount of money. The legislative agenda also includes: online voter registration, expanded opportunities for voting by soldiers overseas and a study group on ranked voting options, including Instant Runoff Voting.
